Hi everyone. I have started to study a new nocturne. I really like Chopin's pieces. But I have some problems with grace notes. Huh Can someone else explain to me the eighth bar in that song. I know how to play grace notes but in that part there are 5 grace notes. Grin There's no enough time to finish that bar. Do I have to play the grace notes with using left hand's time:-\ I tried to add that bar but the program doesn't allow Sad

I'm trying to learn this piece in depth, can anyone help with an analysis of the score, historical background (what was Chopin going through the time he wrote it? Why is it dedicated to la Comtesse d' Appony?), recommended interpretations (I listened to 19 so far, my favorites are Ashkenazy, Dinu Lipati and Moriz Rosenthal) or any opinions or useful information?

I also have a specific question concerning fingerings of the right hand for the last passage. It's 6ths going up in the Db scale, starting from Ab-F. So it's:

F    Gb   Ab   Bb   C   Db   Eb   F
Ab  Bb    C    Db   Eb  F    Gb   Ab (and goes up another octave and finishes in Ab-F)

The fingering from my score is:

3  4  5  4  5  3  5     3  4  5  4  5  3  4     5
1  1  2  1  2  1  2     1  1  2  1  2  1  1     2

Which I find extremely awkward, specially the 1-3, 2-5 part between the F-Db and Gb-Eb and because the last bit changes fingering but not notes the second octave.

So I check online the Paderewski edition, which I heard is one of the best for Chopin, in says:

4  5  3  4  5  4  5     4  5  3  4  5  3  4    5
1  2  1  1  2  1  2     1  2  1  1  2  1  1    2

More comfortable, but it doesn't suit my hand (at least right away). So I decide to try my own and I come up with this:

5  3  4  5  4  3  4    5  3  4  5  4  3  4    5
2  1  1  2  1  1  1    2  1  1  2  1  1  1    2

Which I find comfortable because of how the fingers 3, 4 and 5 fall into the black keys. But today I show this to my teacher and she says she's not convinced about starting with 2-5, so after struggling with it for about 5 minutes, she suggests:

3  4  3  4  5  3  4    3  4  3  4  5  3  4     5
1  1  1  1  1  1  1    1  1  1  1  1  1  1     1

I know fingerings are a very personal subject, but I have 4 different ones and I want to hear more opinions.

And for the most difficult part... any tips on how to coordinate 6 against 7? Since this is the ending of the piece it's played mostly very rubato, and some pianists make the last note of the left hand of this particular bar (which is doing 6 notes per beat) fall together with the last of the right hand (which is playing 7 notes), I don't want to do it mathematically correct but I'd like to be able to do it 'properly'.

This is, again, from a performance about 5 years ago.  Same Steinway D at my school.  Had an ear infection that night--got dizzy at the end--but other than that all should be okay.  Smiley

I recorded this glorious Nocturne on my Roland digital piano.
I've been playing 2.5 years and am self taught. This is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have heard - I hope I did it the justice it deserves. Any comments and feedback would be very much appreciated!

Hey all,
Im looking at Chopin Noct 27-2, and Im trying to work out how best to interpret the presentation of harmony.

First up I looked at it like a simple melody with a broken accompaniment. Simple enough right? I rewrote the first few bars as a waltz, and it worked just fine.

But then I began to look at it more like a four part counterpoint! I set it out in four part open score and it seemed to make so much sense.

My question is, how is this kind of music typically analysed? Is it thought of a simple homophonic arrangement, or rather a four part polyphony?

I prefer the later, personally. Especially when you look at another example - Chopin Noct 72-1, where the upper voices of the accompaniment act like a pedal! I do have illustrative examples in score, but theyre on another computer unfortunately and I dont have them. Will get them posted when I can.

What do you guys reckon?


xx Schubert 90 no.3 or Chopin 27 no.2
December 06, 2006, 03:57:58 AM by wzm

Between these two, which should I learn first?  I want to expand my rep.  By now I've learned too many easily recognizable pieces and want to learn something different.  Although these pieces are well known among pianists, I like the fact that they're obscure enough that the general population hasn't heard them, or if they had, wouldn't make the connection with my playing.  I've sort of been going that direction lately.  Recently I've completed Bach's b flat minor prelude,  Chopin op.28 no.3, and you know I had to learn that Gluck/Sgambatti.

So which way? Chopin or Schubert?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
